Wonder Movie/Book Reflections Contest

Olson Middle School is encouraging families and students to read the book or head to the movies this winter break to see the movie WONDER!  We feel this story is a must see for all to help remind us to look for understanding, kindness and empathy in those around us.   

Common Sense Media says:  Wonder is an earnest, emotional family drama based on R.J. Palacio's award-winning novel of the same name. It centers on Auggie Pullman a young boy with a genetic facial difference. Auggie meets both cruel bullies and good friends as he attends middle school for the first time; his supportive family is always there for him -- even when he tries to push them away. The movie has clear positive messages about choosing kindness, appreciating everyone for who they are (rather than what they look like), and true friendship; empathy and perseverance. 

Students may fill out the attached REFLECTION form and turn it in by January 5 to win movie passes, books and more!
